This book is a reminder of the good and the bad in life. The people that risk their lives to keep us safe, and those that think nothing of life at all. JD Robb did a fabulous job of capturing values in this book ....with her usual extra special flare!!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I love Eve and Rourke, you can listen to these stories in any order and they all make sense. Great plot and I love listening to Eve track down her killer! This story even has a few teary-eyed moments. Susan Ericksen is Eve Dallas and all the other characters are realistic and recognizable as well, she does a great job! The killer in this story is especially heinous and Ms. Ericksen really shows her talent! Lastly, I love how Rourke loves Eve...it's special!
I have listened to hundreds of books since 2007 and to more than 3 books a month! This is my first review ever! I just feel a bit cheated and upset. This is by the way the first J.D. Robb book I listened to. I bought it based on the overall ratings of 4.5-stars but now that I'm having such a hard time finishing the book, I went back to actually read some of the reviews to check if it's just me. Out of the first 2 pages of reviews that I read (20 reviews), 5 of them rated it 1-star overall, 3 of them rated it 2-star overall and 4 of them rated it 3-star overall. So 60% of these reviews (12 out of 20) gave it an overall ratings of 1 to 3 stars. How is it possible that the total ratings of this book are 4.5-stars? lots of time is being waisted on blah blah blah and I'm also having a very hard time listening to the different voices by Ms. Ericksen and can't figure out the different accents and who's who. Yes, I understand that one of the characters is Irish but what I hear is more then one different accent, and they all sound more like Middle Eastern / Turkish accents. No one has just a simple American accent. I feel that this book could have been written/read in about 10 hours rather than 13 hours and 22 minutes. Anyway, as I said it is my first review ever and I feel that I'm now blah blah blahing....I'm just really frustrated. I'm going to attempt to finish the book but am not sure if I'll be able to. Thanks
Many parts of the story are about nothing (remember the Seinfeld episode?) when one or two of the characters are just going on and on and saying nothing.
I'm so sorry to say this (my apologies Ms. Ericksen) but I didn't enjoy her performance.
I am going to try some other books by J.D.Robb. I'm sure I'll find some better ones. In fact I already have another one in my library.
Gratuitous sex, outlandish and abhorrent violence and generally improbable plot. The constant use of foul language was off putting. The narrator shrieked and screamed and her attempt at voice changes was often laughable and annoying.
A Good read (listen)
Best narrator there is!
Without a doubt.
Roark, he is gorgeous and could pick up the tab.
